As Sgt. Schultz said..."I know NOTHING."

I was not about to be drawn into this discussion....Janet will throw me out again....I had an entirely different take on this question. They should rename the game.

I've come to the conclusion that the person who named this game either

A. Led a very sheltered life.

or

B. Is somewhere laughing his cornhole holder off.

Not sure which.

Corn hole (or corn toss) is a popular game in the midwest sport bars and RV clubs, In a slightly smaller version it is called Baggo. I made the mistake of storing mine in the Airstream over the winter and fed a whole family of rodents. They chewed through the plastic container I had the bags stored in. I guess I will store them in he house next winter or in a metal container. One of those metal round canister that British cookies come in should do it.

I just finished making 8 new bags!! Darn squirrels chewed every one of them by the time I caught them! I'm hoping they do not like black beans which was my new stuffing of choice all measured down to the exact ounce . I will be sure to have them stored from now on in a tin till next play. Cornhole ...we call it Baggo up here!

a really BAD name for the game

Yah, I have to weigh in on this one....I have many friends who just love this game!

It's like Toss-Across that I remember from childhood, where you throw a bean bag. But instead of trying to play tic-tac-toe and flip the X or O over, you're simply throwing the bean bag through an approximately 5" diameter hole in a slanted board.

Why on Earth they named it after your first day in prison escapes me.

It's rather like the seating position on most any Suzuki sport bike.....

Yeah, they REALLY should have found a better name!

I can imagine critters would like the contents of the "bean" bags.

Well good luck with this!

Good for your soul

Cornhole is a game where your throw bags filled of corn into a hole (corn + hole = cornhole). I will always call it Cornhole.

(How about Black Beano?!? )

Moreover, the title of this thread is probably pretty decent advice regardless of whatever meaning you want to attribute to it.

I have to say, I am kind of proud of all the post to this thread that I haven't made (esp the one I thought about referencing rodents and Richard Gere). Way to much temptation in this thread, way to much.

.....or that the censors left it up here.....

Obviously, none of the group grew up in the Ozarks.
